Description


From the internationally bestselling author and "master of the sly double- and triple-cross" (Seattle Times), Robert Goddard, The Ends of the Earth is the third installment of the James Maxted thriller series, starring a charismatic Royal Fly-ing Corps veteran-turned-spy.

It is 1919, the Treaty of Versailles has been signed, and a team assembled at Max's behest now anxiously awaits his arrival in Tokyo. Max had traveled to Paris after the end of the Great War to investigate the suspicious death of his diplomat father, Sir Henry Maxted, and was soon plunged into a treacherous game of cat and mouse with the people behind the murder: German spymaster Fritz Lemmer and the dark horse of the Japanese diplomatic contingent, Count Tomura. It is in Japan--the country of Max's birth, where Sir Henry worked early in his career--that Max hopes to finally uncover the truth behind his father's de-mise and take down Lemmer's spy network once and for all. But what Max's co-hort doesn't know is that his own story seems to have come to an end in France. Stuck in limbo, the team decides to pursue their only lead--right into Lemmer's den.

Loaded with death threats, knife fights, a kidnapping or two, and a coded list that has the power to dismantle whole governmental hierarchies, this is a masterful work of historical cut-and-thrust that tests the bonds of family and country to their very limit.
